Dissertation Project


FinTech Valuation

The digital transformation affects the entirety of how we do business. This study will put a special focus on financial services industry which is disrupted by innovative financial technology start-ups. The number of deals in the FinTech industry has constantly risen, yet there still is a high uncertainty on how to correctly determine the value of a FinTech company due to inadequate traditional valuation approaches.

The research project determines the crucial financial and non-financial factors for the valuation of financial technology companies by applying a mixed method research design. An integrate framework and respective hypotheses are generated based on semi-structured expert interviews. Subsequent regression analysis tests hypotheses to identify value drivers in financial technology transactions.
